you shot a semi auto 7.62. Its such a small long distance rifle but its so devistating. So did you shoot prone from long distance? What other kind of weapons did you use?

EDIT: also, is it true that they jam easy.

Depends on which one you mean? The AK-47's 7.62x39mm round is not the same as either the 8mm Mosin Nagant (also 7.62...actually the AK round is basically cut down from this one.) or the 7.62 NATO (.308 Remington). Those rounds have multiple different firearms that shoot them. The Rifle's barrel length and handling characteristics being as much a part of the utility of the firearm for it's use (Battle if Military).

Along with the AK-47( Automat Kalashnikov) and it's variants, you also have the SKS (Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova) which was a 'Carbine' design.

The Mosin Nagent was the standard bolt action rifle round for the Russians. It is also CAN be fired out of the SVD. ( Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova (SVD), literally "Dragunov's sniper rifle") but the Dragunov is meant to use special rounds with a different bullet composition and more propulsive force.

7.62 NATO IS/was the standard NATO round from whenever western nations phased out their WWII armouries until 5.56 NATO(.223 Remington) and assault rifles took over. As such The Fabrique Nationale (FN) Fusil Automatic Leger (Light Automatic Rifle), the Heckler and Kosch (HK) Gwehr 3 (G3) and American contemporary Issue M14. all shot that same round. It also saw use in platoon support weapons such as FN's MAG (Mitrailette Automatic General) or the American GPMG (General Purpose Machine Gun),

It was also not uncommon as a sniper or 'sharpshooter' round (A role in which an upgraded M14 redesignated as the the M1A now serves)


Back in the Day: Infantry trained on the following.

C1: Local Variant of the FN FAL - .308 Remington (7.62 NATO) Battle Rifle. (Semi Auto, 20 round Magazine)
C2: A 'section support' FAL - Selective fire, 30 round magazine, heavy barrel, Integeral Bipod and a 'Bra' full of magazines.

C3: A Browning 30 Cal. MMG. (Also the good old Browning M2HB .50 Cal, Can't remember the local designation.

Eventually we got the C6: (FN MAG) GPMG in 7.62 NATO as well.

When we switched over to the C7 assualt rifle. (Local 'winterized' selective fire M16 variant) we also replaced the C2 with the C9 (FN Minimi.)


We were trained to shoot Our rifles from the prone, standing and seated position. Prone fire generally involved targets out to 300 metres for basic qualification.

Other things you could do with the C1 was as a mobility aid. Put rifle on 'safe', hold butt in two hands, hand barrel to buddy, Third soldier steps on the receiver, and you and buddy boost him into an attic or over an obstacle.

Try doing that with a C7/M16 and you're weapon would end up looking like a private's rank chevron.

on the other hand we couldn't use C1's as improvised floats for river crossings. So I suppose it depended on your preferences as to which rifle was better for which abuses of it's purpose.

The C1 was VERY robust however. difficult to break. It would have stoppages if you let it get dirty however, so cleaning was important.


Other Weapons:

C 5 Submachine gun (sterling SMG) obsoleted by the C7.

Carl Gustav Recoil-less Rifle (man portable cannon in 90mm I think) that was SUPPOSED to be our AD support but needed a special over-sized shell to be Marginally Effective against modern armoured vehicles.

60mm man-packed mortar. The poor man's artillery.

Not sure what this has to do with Men's secrets though. I don't think it's any secret that many of them are fascinated by guns and war. Especially from a safe distance.

Man Cards? LOL. People that are constantly concerned with their so called manhood are usually insecure inside about their own manhood. Many of these so called manly men are hiding their homosexuality with a tough manly exterior. What is a, man? A man can be anything.

Booya! set up a Drumhead trial, rip the 'Guy Stripes' off my sleeves. Break my Man-sword over your knee then turn your backs and march me off in ignominy ...


Ha! wonder how much 'stereotypical' man behaviour is falsely implanted in young boys by fears resembling the above.

And I'm sensing that some of you are not getting the masculine attention you desire. Quit hiding behind false pride in being feminized, and let your Man Flag fly high! Get some tools and hammer something. Feel the testosterone sting your eyes as you sweat. Eat some red meat, and pound a beer! Say things like Horsepower, or College Football. Do stuff that guys say "puts hair on your chest." Gay, Straight, or Indifferent...it's great to be a Man!

Well I'm 6'1" 290lbs, and hairy as a gorilla. But I am joking. I don't think there are requirements for being a Man. I was being silly and kind of man-ish.

Wow, im gonna start calling you rambo. Not gonna lie, most of theeguns i dont even know about.

I bet you were happy to get the FN Mag. If you could unload 100 bullets out of that thing standing up than even chuck norris would pisshis pants. Why did you switch to the fn minimi? Was it speed, reliability or just more accurate?

Can you give me an estament for price on the m16 and if you know how much they cost, some of the attachments like the grip handle and a acog scope? Ive always wanted one.

M2HB .50 CAL? AHHHHH $H**.

Did you ever shoot with shotguns of any kind? The AA-12 became popular in the 80s and that is the one i would have imagined them to use.
